This recipe for lemon, garlic and coriander chicken is the first of a few healthy recipes that I’ll be sharing from Ainsley Harriott’s Low Fat Meals in Minutes. The recipe uses ground coriander as well as a small amount of fresh coriander (aka cilantro), but they are both easily substituted with spices/herbs of your choice. The lemon chicken is really delicious, and according to the book works out at just 195 calories a portion (plus whatever you decide to serve it with). Good for all of you trying to eat healthily, it’s low-calorie and low-fat because the chicken is marinated mostly in lemon juice.

Comfort food’s a funny thing: everyone’s got their own take on it. I can understand counting sweet things as comfort food, or starchy dishes like pasta. I’ve always found it strange though that some people describe dishes like stews or casseroles as comfort food. I suppose it often has to do with what we associate with childhood, or home. For me, this is comfort food: the chicken and cheese pie (or turkey and cheese, depending on the season) that my mum always used to make. The recipe is adapted from one in All in One Cook Book by Stork & Oxo. I like to use a mixture of shortcrust and puff pastry; shortcrust on the bottom/sides of the pie, and puff pastry on the top. I especially love it when the puff pastry that’s in contact with the pie filling gets a bit soggy!
